You have to see his crazy Chinese spy balloon tweet – twitchy.com
Bill Kristol fired off a banger of tweet that has Twitter questioning if the former conservative is okay.
A Chinese spy balloon is meandering its way over the United States, and Bill Kristol came to the defense of the balloon … or used it as an excuse to attack MAGA … or tried to impress his base of left wing followers.
It’s not exactly clear what Bill Kristol was trying to do in this bizarre word salad wonder.
We’re pretty sure the primary goal was to defend Joe Biden for doing nothing about a Chinese spy balloon floating above sovereign U.S. soil.
If the balloon had anti-black history messages stenciled on it, or if it were dropping anti-trans pamphlets down to earth, or if it were broadcasting denunciations of wokeness non-stop, MAGA would be pro-balloon. They’d be welcoming the balloon. They’d be worshipping the balloon.

Twitter had plenty to say about Kristol’s crazy-eyed crack-up.
Didn’t this guy used to be a conservative? https://t.co/Z38ugVGexT

We’re reasonably confident Bill Kristol merely identified as a conservative in the past – transconservative, if you will.
He’s always felt this way about the base of the GOP. They were only tolerated to the extent they were useful to elect ineffectual Republicans and maintain his power within the party.
The Trump presidency and Bill’s loss of any real influence gave Kristol the excuse he needed to finally voice his true feelings.
If Trump was still in office there would be no Chinese spy balloon floating across the entire country in the first place, but anything to distract from Biden allowing it to happen. https://t.co/z3tz7ao1XJ

Yes, that is Kristol’s actual concern. He knows this makes Joe Biden look weak (because Joe Biden is weak).
Bill Kristol is in this odd place where his brain is so addled by late-stage TDS, he feels the need to defend a similarly addled Democrat president, and his only real audience is on the Left.
The result is this disjointed gem of Twitter insanity … and we love it!
Regardless of how you feel about el Donaldo, you have to give him props for just how profoundly he broke a lot of people lol. I wanna hump this tweet. https://t.co/qGLm9mBcdu

Okay, we may not love it THAT much, but LOL.
Any comment on what the balloon that arrived from an enemy state was actually doing, or are you merely capable of trying to provide deflection away from it to protect your ineffectual Presidential choice? https://t.co/HrNbgaYMjt

Bill is definitely broken. The old Bill Kristol would be trying to bomb something already.
Are you drinking again?

Hey, Lincoln Project, come get your boy!
Thank God it’s just a Chinese spy balloon. https://t.co/wfCWG88AUH

Phew! Imagine if it were something more serious, like a teenager wearing a red hat while smiling.
He’s so bad at this. https://t.co/OnhphY9Bc5

That sort of depends on your perspective, we suppose. He is really bad at this, unless you’re a Twitchy editor.

Bill typed the final sentence: ‘They’d be worshipping the balloon.’
He stepped back with satisfaction, gazing admirably at his creation.
‘That is a fine tweet’, he muttered to himself.
Clicking the ‘Tweet’ button brought the fulfillment he sought, relishing the thought of receiving approving likes and retweets from LockUpOrange_97281 and BlewNoMatterWho72.
Intervention. Rehab. Therapy.
Pick one and stick to it.

Why not all three?
Remember when you were Dan Quayle’s chief of staff and wanted to overturn Roe v. Wade? Now you’re just playing DementedGrandad_Defiant! for Twitter likes.

‘DementedGrandad_Defiant’. Not bad, former Twitchy favorite, Damin Toell.
Imagine being in your late 80s and still using Twitter to troll. https://t.co/XTLPZ3DfJ3

Squad goals, if we’re being honest.
Also, LOL. Bill Kristol is 70.
One of the first hints that the memo had gone out was this bizarre tweet last night: https://t.co/3VqNY7O9oj
— RBe (@RBPundit) February 4, 2023
Read the thread. RB’s correct. This is a national security threat, playing out in front of Americans on their TVs, computer screens, and phones.
They know this is bad for Biden. They’re circling the wagons.
And I suppose if it were dropping bombs… https://t.co/DPFt4ZmKa0
— Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) February 4, 2023
Bill Kristol is the only one out here dropping bombs, bro!
Okay, maybe not.

You’ve lost your mind, man. Get a grip. https://t.co/HQFYEdKxwj
— Pradheep J. Shanker (@Neoavatara) February 4, 2023
Alas, Bill Kristol is completely and utterly gripless at this point.
You have become what you claimed to abhor for the better part of 50 years: an unserious, disingenuous fool, defining yourself by what you are against, rather than advocating for a set of policies and principles.

Bill Kristol’s head might be Trump’s greatest real estate achievement.
Bill raises a good point: Why haven’t we started distributing anti-woke propaganda via giant balloon drops? https://t.co/xcLgORz4Wj
— Nate Hochman (@njhochman) February 4, 2023
Hear this man out! LOL.
I’m honestly starting to think that if China invaded, the left would openly root for them if they attacked Trump voters first https://t.co/zw0P1mf4Dy

You know at the beginning of Red Dawn when the Ruskie paratroopers drop in behind the school and the teacher runs out trying to be friendly?
Yeah, that’s the Left with China.
If it were a Russian balloon, Bill would be running around with his hair on fire screaming we need to give Zelensky another $100 billion & nuke it out of the sky. https://t.co/MoNZE4XwOo
— Stacey (@ScotsFyre) February 4, 2023
LOL. Nailed it.
this is a very strong point regarding a hypothetical racist balloon. https://t.co/YINw6CFePX
— T. Becket Adams (@BecketAdams) February 4, 2023
Racist balloons are the worst balloons.
Don’t you hate when you go to Dollar General to pick up some balloons for the kid’s birthday party and they hand you an entire bundle of racist balloons?
Unsurprisingly, Bill Kristol wins dumbest tweet of the day. https://t.co/vjp0jVkAYD

Well done, Bill Kristol. Well done.
